Keira Wilson’s Blog-Technology Wizards visit Iraq

The Blog by Keira Wilson shows us how far technology has expanded in recent times. Now technology groups are travelling to Iraq in order to “strengthen civil society and generally empower people”. We now live in an age where a knowledge of information technology is essential and is now being used in countries such as Iraq in order to inform and educate people. Keira spoke about how blogging is now being promoted all over the world so that people can share information over the internet. The main objective is to create a more “accountable society”. It is evident however that violence is still at large in Iraq and The Washington Post has a more skeptical view that the introduction of technology into a country as war torn as Iraq may be a lost cause. It appears that these efforts may be a little superficial. But still we can all agree that whether or not these efforts will be a success or not, information technology is ever expanding.
